60g Mushers Secret

I seldom need protection from snow and ice, but I use Musher's Secret on my dogs pads when we run in the sand. I find it protects their feet the same way that waxing my boots makes them last longer. Musher's Secret is easy to use and I prefer it over boots as long as there are no sand spurs.

On long trips I use it to make sure my dogs feet hold up for the entire hunt. It's a great product.

Transcript from Steve's Video:

We're looking at Mushers Secret today. It's one of my favorite products for dog pads. Dogs' pads are really the most important part about them from a running standpoint. You've got to have them in good condition. You've got to have them where they can hold up under a lot of pressure.

I do a lot of hunting in really dry environments, so I deal with a lot of sand. Mushers Secret was originally designed for dogs to run in the snow. The concept behind it was that you'd put the Musher Secret, a wax type product, in between the pads and it would keep snow and ice from forming inside the dog's pads. That was the original design for it.

But what I use it for is to condition the pads so that they can be protected from sand burn. It's not uncommon if I have a dog whose pads are not in good shape at the beginning of the season for them to blow a pad. That's where the top of the pad gets ripped off and you are down for about two weeks if your pads come apart like that.

So Musher Secret, to me, the best way to explain it, it's kind of like waxing a boot. It keeps the pads strong and supple. That's just really what it feels like. I put in on my dogs prior to running them. When you get through after an hour, hour and a half, when you look at the pads you can just see the difference between them. Like I said, the best way to describe it is taking a pair of boots and they are dried out, old, and they are going to crack. Pads will do the exact same thing. So Mushers Secret is a great product for that. I use it especially early in the season and it keeps my dogs' pads in great shape.




"We use it year round."

By: J. Johnston

Labrador. Family pet.
Our Lab (was a seizure dog for my nephew) is allergic to just about everything. Gets shots, pills special food etc. Poor guy still doesn't get much relief. His paws itch and he chews his pads to rawness. This dog liked the taste of anti-chew products that made us retch! Tuf-Foot gives him instant relief and reduces the redness in the raw spots within hours. He seems to enjoy the application. We apply Mushers Secret on the pads after the Tuf-Foot dries. This combo has healed and maintained his paw pads better than any other regimen tried the past nine years. Mushers Secret dries quickly and lasts longer than other products even with covert licking and chewing. We use it year round.

Had our first snow of the season last night. Took him out this morning in the snow for a 2 hour run and walk in the snow. Put musher's on his pads, and he could have gone another 2 hours. We quit because I got cold. Great stuff!

"Musher's Secret provides protection without spotting carpets, bed sheets etc."

By: Elissa Thompson From OH

Heidi is a working certified therapy dog, and we are exposed to many surfaces in the course of her visits to facilities - carpets, blacktop, sidewalks, gravel, and often this results in sore paws. Musher's Secret has solved this problem and provides the protection she needs without spotting carpets, bed sheets etc. Thanks!!

By: Gina Permar From MN

German shepherd,lab mix. Owns 2 dogs. Family pet.
I live in Minnesota and walk my dogs daily; however, the really cold days bother them to where they hate going out even for a quick bathroom break, so I tried the wax. It's easy to apply, smells good, and doesn't stain. It doesn't need to go on every time you go out, just a few times a week. A word of warning: freshly waxed paws and lineoleum floors DO NOT MIX! My GSD went galloping into the kitchen, didn't make the corner, and almost took out several appliances. Make sure your dog goes outside right after you apply the wax, then their feet aren't so slippery when they come back inside!

"FANTASTIC product!"

By: Carol

Family pet.
FANTASTIC product! We get snow and ice there are days that I want to protect Cramer's feet -- so ice does not build up between his pads. Tried boots, but they pulled on the dewclaw and caused a lot of pain. Musher Secret keeps the pads clear, and if I put it higher up on the leg, keeps the snow balls off. He is not only my pet but my service dog, so he deserves the best. And the customer service at Gun Dog Supply is #1.

It works perfectly. Just started going hiking on the weekends, and without mushers secret, my dog paws were getting burned on the hot sand and rocks, as well as dried out. Once we put it on, no more problems, and it doesn't clump at all unlike another brand we tried previously.

"Has helped my 1 yr old German Shepherd"

By: Douglas Evansfrom CO

Has helped my 1 yr old German Shepherd. He is cow-hocked and twists his back legs when he walks which has led to sore pads. I used Tuf Foot along with Mushers Secret and between the two products, he is no longer limping. Also hooked him up with neighbor's 1 yr old female Weimaraner, and he runs like no tomorrow trying to herd her, getting great workout along the way! Thanks to Steve/GDS for making this possible!

I hike every weekend with my little cutie Domino. She is part beagle and part dalmation if you can picture that. We went on a 5 hour hike and sad to say her paw pads were raw and pealing. I've been using the Musher's since then and it's fantastic. Her paw pads look great after a long hike. I'll be buying more when needed. I highly recommend the wax for anyone who takes their animal on a long hike.

The product arrived very quickly, and there was plenty of communication about the order and tracking information right away. This winter has been hard on the dogs because they would need to come back inside shortly after going out for a walk because their paws hurt. With musher's secret they are out and about for nice long walks ,which keeps them more sane inside. Great way to relieve wintery cabin fever.

I know my dog is little, only 7.5 lbs, but his paws need protection too. He loves to have Mushers worked into his paws.
He does not chew at his paws and is very comfortable with the product. I hope this keeps his paws supple and free of damage through below zero temperatures we endure. He cannot stay out for long, but he does go out every day.

I gave this rating because I haven't had a chance to use the product excessively yet. So far it's seems good. I will say that the shipping cost for this was over half of the price of the item, which is ridiculous. To charge 8.00 for shipping this small item is too much. And the cost for the item for the quantity is too high. Delivery was fast, no problems.

Mushers Secret is a dense barrier wax that forms a breathable bond with your dog's paws. Developed in Canada for use as a pad protector for sledding dogs, it provides protection even in the most extreme conditions. Perfect for dogs who don't like boots on their feet!

Made from 100% safe and natural waxes, Musher's Secret won't stain carpet, is non-toxic, never goes bad, and is easy to use. The semi-permeable shield is absorbed into the paws, allowing perspiration to escape through the toes. Excellent for preventing snowballing and saltburn on your dog's toes in the winter and protects paws against sandburn and hot asphalt in summer. Apply a small amount on and in-between your dog's toes. If snowballing re-occurs, just reapply. Wipe off excess after use.

Also can be used for protection and soothing relief from fly bitten ears, open sores, cracked toes, nicks, scratches, and burns. Just apply a small amount to the affected area as needed.

Country of Origin: Made in Canada.
